FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 1, 2016
For the ninth straight year, the Virginia Symphony Orchestra (VSO) opened its Williamsburg concert season with a free performance at the amphitheater at Lake Matoaka, located on the campus of the College of William and Mary. Under the baton of the Symphony's Resident Conductor, Benjamin Rous, the Orchestra performed a variety of classical and contemporary music which was intended to give the audience a preview of selections that the Symphony will be performing during its 2016 - 2017 Season. Williamsburg concerts are held at Phi Beta Kappa Hall on the College campus, and also at CrossWalk Community Church.
Virginia Symphony Society of Greater Williamsburg President Barbara Vollmer welcomed the Orchestra and, together with longtime supporter and VSSGW Founder Mr. Bert Aaron, presented Virginia Symphony Orchestra Chair Patrick B. McDermott with a check for $55,000 to support the VSO. The funds were proceeds from the 2016 VSSGW Annual Gala held earlier this year.
